But, although we had 10 bags and 5 carry - ons, we were only charged $400, which is a lot but it could have been so much worse!
I am busy figuring out where exactly I am. how strange to look our my windows and only have a vague understanding of my where abouts...no knowledge of local streets or anything. I have a lot to learn.
What I do know, is that I have been blessed to live in an amazing house! I almost feel guilty for having such a nice place! But God supplied it and it all transacted so smoothly. It is a confirmation of His will for us to be here.
Tomorrows is my daughters 18 th birthday. I am so glad we made it in time to be with her on this important day in her life. We will be celebrating at Jackie's house with a Torta Tres Leches cake and visiting with an American embassy family who are also Christians working here in Paraguay.
It was so nice to wake up this morning and find Brazilian coffee and an espresso pot provided by my son in law! but better yet was the hand drawn poster on the fridge decorated with stickers by the two grand daughters! They are as cute as ever!!! And close by! WOW!
Sorry this is so random but I am still quite tired. I'll post more when I am a bit more coherent. Thank you all for your prayers and kind thoughts in these last days of travel.
I leave you with a refrain that was running through my head during our trip,
from J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring;
The Road goes ever on and on,
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with weary feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither than? I can not say.
Just change Road for airport concourses, gates and shuttles, for a good description of the last two days!!
